Bold and complex blend of Negroamaro and Primitivo. Flavours of blackberry, prune, cinnamon, dark chocolate and raisins

This is a powerful and well developed blend of two great Southern Italian grapes: Negroamaro and Primitivo (which is also known as Zinfandel). Grown on old vines ranging from 45 to 50 years of age, the grapes are picked by hand in September. After fermentation, the wine is aged for three months in French oak to gain hints of vanilla and chocolate. This is a fine wine with the potential to age and improve for six or seven years. Enjoy it now, or cellar for later.

Tasting notes: Deep ruby colour. On the nose, Le Camarde offers an overwhelming aroma of liquorice, sweet juicy prunes and Amsterdam pipe tobacco. This is complimented by notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, cloves, white pepper and dried Rosemary spice. In the mouth, the wine is dry, with smooth velvety tannins. It has medium acidity. Each sip tastes like blackberry, liquorice, prunes and sweet tobacco, leading into a long finish.

  1. Wine Geek

    This wine was a discovery for me, Primitivo is a very powerful grape. The wine was rich, had a very nice body. Wines from Apulia right at the Southern tip of the Italian heel are not big celebrities as reds from Piedmont or Tuscany, but they are totally under-priced. That’s why so many people are craving for Primitivo there days. At this price, I would happily drink it every day.

  2. George S

    My mother absolutely adores it. Easy-drinking but complex enough to be interesting

  3. Tony P (verified owner)

    I found it very disappointing. Austere, not the richness I expect from a Southern Italian wine from there grapes.

  4. Elena

    Lovely, nose reminiscent of prunes and dark chocolate, not too austere. Amazing quality for money.
